  • I'm in the same boat, I spend too much on crafts I LOVE to sew and make Jewelry. Have you tried that

  • I have no room for a sewing machine in this house. (I can't wait to get our new house!) Mine has been in storage for months. I love sewing, but I can't due to space. Never have I tried Jewelry though... I don't think I have that much of a creative touch...

  • I like beading, quilting, and making hand made appliques. I also like to go through my fabric stash or rearange my sewing room around. Today I went through my file box and threw out things I did not need. So I guess when I get bored I do things around the house. Like I am now trying a new marinade on flank steak, it has to marinade for two days. While I wait for that I slowly decide what to do with my fabric that I have.

  • I love making jewelry too. There are all kinds of cheap books to help, even videos on you tube.

  • I do quilting- I got a ton of fabric along and along, mostly on sale, and it takes a good while to do things by hand, so it's going to last me a LONG time. lol I also crochet, read, write, do cross stitch and plastic canvas, macrame, friendship bracelets... the list could go on forever! lol What are you burnt out on?

    It's a site that I love to make and "swap" crafts and such with. You sign up for a swap and so do a bunch of other people either from the states or internationally and you make a craft according to the guidelines for the swap. You'll get a partner that you send your craft to and a partner you'll recieve a craft from. Swaps can be for handmade postcards, jewelry, ATCs, recipes, pen pal letters. That site keeps me busy as far as hobbies go and I love it! It's addictive!!!
